In contrast to my last post on the awful management of Little Chef I did catch another program which was presented by Gerry Robinson on BBC Four. It is a new series where Gerry is interviewing the movers and shakers of the business world and in this one he interviewed the British Airways Chief Executive, Willie Walsh.
What came across loud and clear was Willie’s ability to lead and while I was never a big fan previously thought his candour and straight answers helped show his leadership skill. I am a big fan of BA so it was pleasing to actually see how this British institution is being looked after and has as much potential as any airline to succeed. The interview with Gerry could have gone really badly but I feel it was successful and obviously goes to show why his resignation was not demanded by the city following the T5 opening. I just wish they had fought a bit harder to keep Concorde flying!
